How did I do on the scale?
Not one pound lost. Or gained.
Am I discouraged?
No, not yet.
Because it takes time to kick start the metabolism again from its previous low state of affairs. I actually do feel stronger and more energetic from these healthy habits I have adopted for 4 weeks and hopefully longer.
How is my team the Twinkies doing and how are the two other teams, the Ding-Dongs and the Ho Ho’s doing?
We have some perfect scorers and then we have some not so perfect scorers. I fall into the latter group!
What do I like about this game/diet?
Well, the team aspect keeps me from having as many points deducted as I might normally have if I wasn’t participating with a team. Also, there has been some hilarious banter going between the teams: taunting and sending pictures of bad food choices to one another.
What do I dislike about this game?
I hate the fact that I can’t change my new, healthy habit that I decided on without incurring a 50-point penalty. I chose to journal each day and with work, blogging, reading, and reading blogs, time for journaling is tough to fit in.
What is something interesting I have learned in this game?
Well, I did find a new dessert that can be a complete mini-meal. It is made of low-fat ricotta cheese, frozen berries, maple syrup, vanilla, and chopped nuts. It is very delicious and healthy at the same time.
Week 2 has begun. Game on!
